A Moment with MatchaSho


MatchaSho is an original art form produced by Shoran. It is an expression of nature and beauty through matcha as the “ink” for the written script.

Shizuoka is world renowned for its green tea fields and MatchaSho is Shoran’s love letter to her hometown and the beauty and serenity that surrounds it.
